Macrium Reflect Usage Guide: Here is how to create a bootable Flash Drive and partition it to have a single USB Stick containing both the Macrium Reflect Rescue Disk and a Backup Image partition in that rescue disk itself. So if you have a large/fast USB Flash Drive, you can use it to both boot into the Macrium Reflect program without installing and use its second partition to create a backup image of your computer What I usually do when I buy a new computer, the moment I turn it on and before even getting into the Windows setup wizard I boot straight away to the Macrium Reflect Rescue Disk, create a full backup of the local disk including all its partitions. That way I always have a backup of the untouched factory image should I ever need it in case I changed my SSD later or had an issue that prevents me to use the local restore option Macrium Reflect Rescue Media ISO v7.3.5555 (with RAID support and cloning to dissimilar hardware supported). Spoiler: Changelog Bug fixes and Improvements v7.3.5321 - 3rd November 2020 Macrium Task Scheduler If a scheduled backup was missed without the option 'Run the task as soon as possible after a scheduled task is missed' enabled, then the Run Now button would stop working until the PC was restarted. This has been resolved. Scheduled backups running on startup were starting too quickly, without giving network connections time to initialise. This has been resolved. The Macrium Task Scheduler now keeps extra copies of its internal configuration files to prevent failure on corruption. When trying to import a scheduled task with a definition file path that doesn't exist, Reflect will now prompt to Browse for a different definition file. Rescue Media Builder The Windows Version of the WinRE kernel could be incorrectly displayed. This has been resolved. Reflect Monitor ReflectMonitor.exe could fail to launch at logon and prevent notification of running backups. This has been resolved. Backup Log A Consolidation 'Warning' error could override a 'Failure' error for a backup and incorrectly display a Warning icon instead of Error. This has been resolved. License Key We've added 'copy' functionality for the license key displayed in the About dialog Use RUFUS to make a bootable USB Flash Disk from it Note: I never install Macrium Reflect, I only boot from the USB Flash Disk to create or restore images. That way I have none of its bloated services running in the background. Be smart...be like Spartan..
